Falling Leaves

From the first time I saw the gorgeous Pan’s Labyrinth colorway from Tre Liz, I knew leaves needed to be in the mix on the finished design. This asymmetric triangle, marrying fun mesh and a leafy border perfectly complements a highly variegated colorway, in a fun and unexpected way.

Materials

  • Finished Measurements: Triangle dimensions: 71″ along leafy edge; 75″ along increase edge; 37″ along bind-off edge. Shawl was blocked fairly aggressively.
  • Yarn: approximately 450 yards total DK- weight yarn. I used Tre Liz Alpaca/Silk/ Cashmere blend in Pan’s Labyrinth.
  • Needles: US6/4mm needle for flat knitting, or size needed to get gauge. (I used a 32″ circular needle for this shawl).
  • Notions: stitch markers, tapestry needle.
  • Gauge: 20 sts = 4″/10 cm in stockinette stitch, measured after blocking.
